The Glasslands - New Brooklyn Venue

UPDATE - If you are looking for the Glasslands concert calender, go HERE. And then scroll way down.

Mystery solved. Seems like as a Manhattan venue closes, a cool new Brooklyn venue come along to pick up the slack. Luna Lounge, Rothko, Avalon, Continental, CBGB. Union Hall, McCarren Park Pool, Studio B, and now...

The Glasslands @ 289 Kent Ave, Williamsburg.

Not to be confused with Glasshouse Gallery. But there is a connection:

I will be opening a new art/music/sports arena with the inimitable Brooke(of Glasshouse Gallery fame) over on Kent by the old Domino sugar factory. I would like to call it Rupert Murdoch or maybe more mysterious like phantom 289, but i'll have to run that by my bp (business partner) first. The place is about 2200sf of pure electric fun. It'll also be the new headquarters of: I and Ear record label (www.ierecs.com)--------------- Freestyle Non Profit Arts (www.freestyle-arts.org)---------- and Indoor Hockey 2006 ta-da! We will begin our monthly rotating art installations in september. A new website should be up and running-- but for now go to : www.brookebaxter/glasshousegallery.com or just check back here to keep track of what's happening.

Here's what's on their calander:

9/12 Tall Firs (ecstatic peace) cd release, awesome color, jah division
9/22 Lil Howling Wolf, Coachfingers (of no neck blues)(Locust)
9/29 Sir Richard Bishop (fr. Sun City Girls)
9/30 Jessica Rylan fr Can't, Door. Hi Red Center, Rocket Surgery
10/2 Yellow Swans/ Grouper/ White Rock (mem mouthus/double leopard)
10/5 Zs more tba

and of cource,

10/7 Oxford Collapse (subpop), Cause Co-Motion, CHin up Chin Up dance party

This does not actually solve the problem. WHERE on Kent, which covers a lot of ground none of it too close to subways. The VVoice says it's on Kent between 10th and 11th Streets, but they do NOT say whether that's North 10th and 11th or South 10th and 11th, and Googlemaps firmly identifies it as nowhere near either one. Ideas? Has anyone actually ever been there?
